The NYK-owned and Shin-Nippon Kaiyosha operated tugboat Sakigake has celebrated its 100th liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering operation on 23 January 2020, since its delivery in 2015.
“The LNG bunkering was conducted safely and efficiently from a tank truck at the No. 5 quay of Shinko, Yokohama,” said NYK in an announcement.
“NYK is making use of the expertise and know-how the company has obtained through LNG transportation over the years to expand its wide range of businesses to LNG-fuel supply and sale.
“The company is thus making a proactive effort to shift to LNG-fuelled vessels as one solution to environmental concerns.
“NYK will continue its efforts to reduce the company’s environmental load and contribute to the realization of a sustainable society.”
